. so no, no regrets. >> i sat down with president clinton, president ahmadinejad. i've had world leaders rolling in and out of here all week, stephanie. >> i'm sorry, say that again, piers? >> i said i've sat down this week with president clinton, with president ahmadinejad. with tony blair. i've had world leaders coming out of my ears this week. couldn't the president have found time to have met some of them or maybe even come on my show and met them? >> well, as i said, the president always makes time for world leaders. it's an ongoing thing. he talks to them all the time. it's not just about scheduling meetings in new york. it's about conversations and meetings all year long, as part of your full-time job. so no regrets about this past week, and you know, those conversations will continue. >> i'm sure we will be talking again soon. stephanie cutter, thank you very much. >> thank you, piers. >>> let's bring in my political all-stars now. republican strategist kellyanne conway and former michigan governor jennifer granholm. welcome to you both. wow, you're both in blazing red. >
of state hillary clinton meets with the israeli prime minister later this evening. for more on all of this we get two views. paul pillar had a 28-year career at the c.i.a., much of it focusing on the middle east. he's now a non resident fellow at georgetown university. and robert satloff is executive director of the washington institute for near east policy, a washington think tank. and we thank you both for being with us again. let me start with you, paul pillar. did you hear something new in what prime minister netanyahu said today? >> not really. the prime minister, of course, has been agitating and warning on the subject for quite some time and going beyond mr. netanyahu we've seen over the last several years, in fact, progressive projections that iran is on the verge of a nuclear weapon. most of those projections have not borne out. but what we didn't get in this-- in the comments by the prime minister was really a clear sense of what his preferred red line would be. if we take literally what he did with his red marker on his prop it would suggest he's say nothing 90% enrichme
. president obama had two appointees. george w. bush had two appointees. bill clinton had two. but there could be a bunch in a hurry. justice ginsburg is the most likely to leave. and if president obama wins, that wouldn't change the balance of five republicans and four democrats. but if the five-to-four balance shifts, you could see dramatic dramatic changes in the court. it all depends on who >> do you simply assume president obama would name someone like sonja sot ma yor or clarence thomas for that matter? can you just assume those would be the possibilit probabilities if you will? >> that is precisely what i would assume. you know, there's a mythology about the court that presidents often areurprised by how their justices turn out. but you know, that is very much the exception rather than the rule. if you look at the justices currently on the court right now, every single one of them has turned out more or less as re there are individual cases, there are surprises. i certainly was surpred by roberts' vote in the affordable care act case. hatlarge presidents w you e is what you get. iden yo
to be an investigation? are you confident in the investigation going on? secretary clinton has come forward and said the fbi's in the early stage of the investigation -- >> so early they haven't gotten to benghazi. >> that's the thing. they're not even able to go to benghazi and the site is still not secure. what does that tell you? >> i think it tells me that over time, the details always come out. i'm not sure what we can really be gained in immediate investigation of the kind you're talking about because the crime scene is basically so badly compromised but over time, we will -- there were intercepts, there were other information. there's some information that convinced the president of the legislative assembly to go on our nationwide tv and say we know it's al qaeda. now, i don't know that, but it was clearly a terrorist attack and the administration described it as not being so. they owe the american people an explanation. >> there are some republicans saying this is -- i talked to a congressman last night who said this is a failure of the obama administration. do you see it as that, the way, w
guess would be five with hillary clinton and three with -- with john mccain. but this, of course, would be the very first debate for -- for governor romney. the cynic in me says this memo is really all about lowering expectations. because if you can lower expectations, whoever beats a low expectation will be the -- the -- seemingly the winner. is that true? >> well, you know, we have televised debates. you have a couple levels of that. you have people who are going to talk about how someone looked, how their makeup looked. remember with nixon it was about how he sweated. with george bush it was about looking at his watch. it's about someone's eye contact with the camera. but what this really still has to come down to is reminding voters what we're facing. and if we continue to import oil, and fund opec and send our soldiers to defend opec oil fields and lose our blood and treasure there, that's a concern. if we talk about the problems with china and the manipulating their currency and that affecting our manufacturing, that's a concern. it's about the cost of health care rising, about go
to be careful. you've got to proceed very cautiously to understand exactly what went on. secretary clinton, to her credit, has immediately initiated what already exists under the law, a formal inquiry with one of our most respected independent diplomatic figures, ambassador tom pickering, former undersecretary. he is heading this up and they will get the answers. i'm absolutely confident about that. what the republicans ought to be doing is not turning the tragedy of chris stevens' death -- this means something to us. chris stevens worked on our committee. he worked for dick lugar. he was a pearson fellow. he was a terrific ambassador representing our country. he cared about libya. he was committed to libya. and what are the republicans doing? all they can do is see the politics in this. they can't see how are we going to make sure that libya continues down the road to democracy and that those 30,000 libyans who stormed the militia headquarters and stole the weapons, are backed up over the next days in efforts that will help them make libya the libya we all want it to be. that's the questi
to be there and are eager to make their case. bill clinton was like that. ronald reagan was like that. these two are not like that. for them, this is more, please do not let me do anything wrong, than, what can i do right? as was discussed earlier, he needs a dramatic moment to shift the momentum. if he is intimidated by the experience or feeling boxed in, he is less likely to do that. for obama, it is more a question for maintaining his lead. he does not want to do anything right now that reverses the trajectory he is on. i would expect he is a literate -- a little timid as well. >> if you look at past debates, one dealing with policy, the d, the with gerald forwar other is more style, where obama made a joke about his age. how much is policy and how much a style in these debates? >> i think probably my judgment would be a lot of the stylistic -- a lot of it is stylistic. it is the way they come across to the voters. it is not necessarily as much what they are saying as how they are saying it. every once in awhile, it is itchly more of a case of glti avoidance. to do with lot with their handler
follow up on secretary clinton's meeting with him. he has denied that they had a phone conversation and instead said he also spoke with governor romney. >> well, i don't think that benjamin netanyahu is tampering with the american election. he has a timeline that he has to deal with. an existential threat coming from iran. working on nuclear arsenal with leaders that deny the holocaust and promised a new one and have vowed to wipe the state of israel off the map. not everything is actually about barack obama and the election prospects. these guys have serious issues to deal with. the president of the united states is quite literally phoning it in and benjamin netanyahu is laying out a real scenario. this is something that the world ought to be dealing with, that leader of the free world, the united states would've been much more engaged than there would've been international coalition to deal with this looming threats. mitt romney may very well have to deal with what barack obama leads in his wake, and there will be a great deal left in his wake. megyn: the readout of the call doesn
to the secretary of state hillary clinton. in that letter, darrell issa and jason chain asked how much the department knew about at least a dozen threats to our ambassador. what else are these lawmakers saying here? >> accounts from whistle blowers, top republicans claiming at least 12 security related incidents before the consulate attack, including this rpg attack in benghazi on june 11. the targeting of the british ambassador is part of a growing body of evidence that the al-qaeda affiliate in north africa was active and seeking targets. the letter from the oversight committee reads in part, quote, the u.s. mission in libya made repeated requests for increased security. the mission in libya was denied these resources by officials in washington. >> i think it's fair to say that we are still working through what we have in the building in terms of documentation, in terms of information about what we knew, who glue it, when they knew and that's part of the process we have to go through. >> hearing is scheduled for the time when witness also testify about the alleged warnings. >> you ha
clinton one-on-one for more than an hour in what was described as an indepth discussion on iran and shared goal of preventing that country from acquiring a nuclear weapon. just hours earlier, netanyahu used visual imagery to lay out in clear terms his own red line for dealing with iran. nbc news chief foreign affairs correspondent andrea mitchell has more from the u.n. general assembly. >> reporter: trying to immobilize the world against what he sees as a threat to israel's existence, benjamin netanyahu armed himself with a simple cartoon to illustrate how close he says iran is to developing a nuclear weapon. >> this is a bomb. this is a fuse. >> reporter: a day after iran's president ahmadinejad called israel uncivilized zionists. iran is already 70% to getting enough nuclear fuel for a bomb and has to be stopped within months. >> if these are the facts -- and they are -- where should a red line be drawn? a red line should be drawn right here. >> reporter: president obama told the u.n. this week he thinks there is a way to avoid military action. >> america wants to resolve this issue thro
, netanyahu met with u.s. secretary of state hillary clinton. u.s. hopes diplomacy can stop iran. netanyahu argued ultimatums don't lead to war, they prevent them. >> i believe faced with a clear red line iran will back down and this will give more time for sanctions and diplomacy to convince iran to dismantle its nuclear weapons program altogether. >> david martin has more on netanyahu's plea for action. >> reporter: it looked like a cartoon but it was deadly serious. israel's prime minister netanyahu drew the red line that would trigger an attack on iran's nuclear program as clearly as it has ever been drawn. >> a red line should be drawn right here. before -- before iran completes the second stage of nuclear enrichment necessary to make a bomb. >> reporter: that second stage is taking place at this underground facility near the holy city of qom where iran is enriching uranium to a 20% level of purity, one step away from the 90% needed to build a bomb. according to the latest report by u.n. inspectors, iran has about 200 pounds of 20% uranium. roughly two-thirds of what it would need to b
charges baseless allegations. he met with secretary of state hillary clinton. u.s. hopes diplomacy can stop iran. netanyahu argued ultimatums don't lead to war, they prevent them. >> i believe faced with a clear red line iran will back down and this will give more time for sanctions and diplomacy to convince iran to dismantle its nuclear weapons program altogether. >> david martin has more on netanyahu's plea for action. >> reporter: it looked like a cartoon but it was deadly serious. israel's prime minister netanyahu drew the red line that would trigger an attack on iran's nuclear program as clearly as it has ever been drawn. >> a red line should shall drawn right here. before -- before iran completes the second stage of nuclear enrichment necessary to make a bomb. >> reporter: that second stage is taking place at this underground facility here the holy deof koom where iran is enriching uranium to a 20% level of purity, one step away from the 09% needed to build a bomb. according to the latest report by u.n. inspectors, iran has about 200 pounds of 20% uranium. roughly two-thirds of w
, and they are in consistent contact, as are members of the president's national security team, and secretary hillary clinton. you know, the president is focused on governing, restoring our place in the world, focussing on what needs to be done in these areas, and mitt romney seems to be focused on politicizing inappropriately at many times these global issues. there's a real difference. >> how do you respond to some folks who look at this the way this is played out and make the case that the president was kind of drawn in to this kind of political back and forth with netanyahu? was that really an important part of the president coming forward and saying, look, demonstrating to the american people that he is on top of what is going on in israel, they're on the same page? >> our relationship is israel is absolutely important. the president is the first person to say that. you heard prime minister netanyahu say a week or so ago he doesn't have any sdar to get involved in american politics. you know, he knows the president is absolutely committed to making sure iran does not acquire a nooublg weapon, and we're
is syria. today our secretary of state hillary clinton will be meeting with other leaders from around the region and beyond to discuss this issue. >> that's right. she's hosting a meeting of the so-called friends of syria. it's a group of countries from the region, from europe, that are working really hard. you know, this is really bedeviled the international community for a lot of reasons, not always that president bashar al assad won't step down, but at the same time, the security council hasn't been able to act. world powers, like a lack of political will to take action to get bashar al assad out. and also the opposition really isn't organized. and i think today what they want to do is try and get the rebels on the ground that are fighting, the political people on the ground that are trying to help the syrian people, and also these exiles to start working to the towards a common vision. because they're really all over the place. >> meantime those numbers of people being killed just continue to escalate. >> that's right. >> elise labott. thank you so much. we appreciate that. >> 15
